Watch the Insane Daredevil Season 2 Stairwell Fight Scene
Over the weekend, Netflix debuted Season 2 of Daredevil, with all 13 episodes currently available on the streaming service. Many fans have already binge-watched the entire run. Yesterday we showed you a video that breaks down all of the Easter Eggs throughout the latest episodes. One of those Easter Eggs was the Dogs of Hell, a biker gang mentioned in ABC's Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., who are featured in one of this season's biggest action set-pieces, a five-minute stairwell fight sequence. Superhero Network has debuted this scene online, which ties into another Easter Egg. There will be SPOILERS below, so read on at your own risk.
This sequence takes place in the third episode, New York's Finest, after Matt Murdock (Charlie Cox) is chained up by Jon Bernthal's The Punisher. We previously saw Matt chained up in one of the posters for Daredevil Season 2, which is a nod to a famous comic entitled The Choice. In the season itself, we see this scene unfold, where The Punisher has given Matt Murdock a gun with the ultimatum that he must kill someone, with some of the exact lines of dialogue pulled directly from the comic book itself.
This fight scene takes place after Daredevil has escaped, with the gun still taped to his hand, only Matt soon discovers that there is actually no bullets in the gun. This leads to an epic fight between Matt and numerous bikers, that starts in an apartment complex hallway and spills into a stairwell. This may be one of the best action set pieces of the entire series, and a possible homage to a hallway sequence in Season 1 that was filmed all in one take.
Just when Matt thinks he is bringing order back to the city, new forces are rising in Hell's Kitchen. Now the Man Without Fear must take on a new adversary in Frank Castle and face an old flame - Elektra Natchios (Elodie Yung). Bigger problems emerge when Frank Castle, a man looking for vengeance, is reborn as The Punisher, a man who takes justice into his own hands in Matt's neighborhood. Meanwhile, Matt must balance his duty to his community as a lawyer and his dangerous life as the Devil of Hell's Kitchen, facing a life-altering choice that forces him to truly understand what it means to be a hero. Rosario Dawson is also returning as Claire Temple, along with Scott Glenn as Stick.
These new episodes come on the heels of a successful first season of Netflix's second Marvel TV series, Jessica Jones, which has since been picked up for a second season. It was also recently confirmed that Luke Cage will debut on September 30, but we still don't known when Iron Fist will debut. These two characters, along with Daredevil and Jessica Jones, will join forces in the miniseries The Defenders, which is expected to debut sometime in 2017. Check out this new video with one of the best fight scenes from Daredevil Season 2, and stay tuned for more on this hit series.
